Action Bronson and Chance The Rapper Share “Baby Blue”

The release of Action Bronson‘s long-awaited debut album is just weeks away, and earlier today the New York native shared a monstrous new single titled “Baby Blue.”

Co-written by Zane Lowe and produced by “Uptown Funk” creator Mark Ronson, the latest cut from Mr. Wonderful finds Action Bronson swapping bars with Chance The Rapper over a piano-heavy beat. It’s a lot lighter in tone than the title may lead you to believe, but there is a sense of heartache in several bars that is far too palpable to ignore. Bronson shines brightest, but Chance’s vocals on the hook …

You’re Going To Really, Really, Really Like The New Carly Rae Jepson Single

Carly Rae Jepsen may have just done the impossible. Though many believed it could never be done, it seems the Canadian vocalist has finally recorded a song that may surpass the catchiness and lasting popularity of “Call Me Maybe.”

Earlier this morning, March 2, Carly Rae Jepsen shared a new song with the world titled “I Really Like You.” The sugar-coated pop anthem offers a high energy tale of love, or at least a crush, and the rush of excitement that follows that first encounter with someone special. The hook may be the simplest chorus of the last year, and …

Stream “California Nights” & Fall For Best Coast All Over Again

This may seem hard to believe, but Best Coast have not released an album since 2012. It’s not as if they have been hiding all this time, either. The duo has traveled the world at least once since their last record dropped, including dates at countless festivals around the globe. They also spent a lot of time finding a new sound, which they are now sharing with fans through the new single “California Nights.”

Taken from an album with the same name, which is set for release in early May, “California Nights” is a lush pop rock jam that takes …

Belle Mare Continue to Mesmerize With “Cicada”

Since 2013′s The Boat Of The Fragile Mind EP (which I still regret not picking up a limited cassette of), Brooklyn’s Amelia Bushell and Thomas Servidone, the duo known as Belle Mare, has been a band we’ve kept a careful eye on. Following a Shivers cover from the same year, we’re thrilled to finally have new material from the band to play on repeat.

“Cicada” is a 5-minute epic of dreamy pop a la Beach House which builds into a shoegaze storm of noisy guitars, crashing drums and haunting vocals before fading out and demanding that you hit play …

Blind Mice

Blind Mice Share New Track, “Nervous”

About a month back, we were given our first taste of Blind Mice’s upcoming EP, Sunday Songs, in the form of a raw, punk-inspired jam titled “Fifteen.” Since then, we’ve been eagerly awaiting more new material from the budding New Bedford quartet, and earlier this morning, our prayers were answered thanks to the good people at Brooklyn Vegan.

Picking up where “Fifteen” left off, the band’s second single, “Nervous,” is a gritty anthem built around crashing guitars and memorable melodies. Stream it after the break and share your thoughts with us in the comments section.…

Death Cab For Cutie

Death Cab For Cutie Impress with Fantastic New Single, “No Room In Frame”

Death Cab for Cutie have joined forces with NME to begin streaming the second single off their eighth full-length record, Kintsugi. Titled “No Room In Frame,” give it a listen by following the jump below.

Whereas the previously released “Black Sun” was dark and brooding, “No Room In Frame” feels undeniably light and airy, and will almost certainly conjure quick comparisons to Plans and Narrow Stairs. Gibbard’s thought-provoking idioms are out in full force, and the whole track seems to come together effortlessly over the course of four toe-tapping minutes. It’s a side of Death Cab …

Heems (Ex-Das Racist) Reminisces On A Lost Love In New Single With Help From Dev Hynes

Between all the endlessly enjoyable material released by Das Racist — up until their untimely breakup in 2012 — and his own solo mixtapes released thus far, Himanshu “Heems” Suri never disappoints. To continue the trend, he’ll be releasing his first proper solo effort, cleverly titled Eat Pray Thug, on March 10 via Megaforce.

This new single, featuring Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes, seems to be one of his most personal and sentimental we’ve heard yet. It’s smooth, reflective, and ultimately pretty surprising honestly. Regardless, I can’t get enough. It’s a new side of Heems I can …

The Young Wild Release New Video For Ultra-Catchy Single, “Not A One”

California’s The Young Wild is an act that was unfortunately not on my radar until very recently. So, needless to say, I’ve been making up for lost time, starting with countless replays of the video for their most recent single, “Not A One.”

Premiering over at Nerdist earlier this week, the video for “Not A One” is ostensibly simple but stylish in all the right ways. Having only come to frution as a band late last year after meticulous planning by singer-songwriter Bryan B. William, it’s impressive that we’re getting material of this caliber from an act so early in …

Daisyhead Release Melodically Moving New Single, “East Bend”

Over the course of the past year or so, Daisyhead have cemented themselves on our radar here at UTG. From their 2014 split with Have Mercy to their well-received Jimmy Eat World cover that was featured on No Sleep’s A Comp For Mom, the band continues to prove their worth in the alternative scene alongside bands like Balance And Composure, Citizen and Basement.

Their most recent effort, The Smallest Light, is shaping up to be a huge step forward for the Nashville quartet, if the singles released so far are any indication to go by. Following “Take

Heaters

Dance to Heaters’ New Video for “Levitate Thigh”

Garage rocker act Heaters have announced a new 7″ release due out April 28 via Beyond Beyond is Beyond Records. The Mean Green 7″ B-side, “Levitate Thigh,” has gotten a music video to promote the release, and the short clip is just simple enough to keep your attention without burning your eyes. Anything more intense would make the garage rock too much to handle. Then again, we’re always down for a doozy.

Directed by Psyche Coaster, the video sees some vintage footage of men dancing in their homes. The footage takes that garage rock sound and puffs a bit more …

Big-Sean-2015

Big Sean Stuns With “One Man Can Change The World”

With a week to go before Dark Sky Paradise hits, Big Sean has shared what may soon be considered a modern classic.

Built upon a steady piano accompaniment, “One Man Can Change The World” pairs Big Sean with Kanye West and John Legend for an ode to a child’s endless potential. Sean has always been one to speak of his ambition and how it lead him to turn his dreams into reality, but here he takes things to another level altogether. There’s always time spent paying tribute to Sean’s late grandmother, including a cell phone message. You can stream the …

Step Rockets Release Another Mega Jam With “Turning Tides (By Your Side)”

With huge, undeniable hits like “Kisser” and “Phantom Flower” already under their belts, the Twin Cities’ Step Rockets are one step closer to superstardom with each surefire hit they put out. The newest they’ve added to their catalogue, “Turning Tides (By Your Side)” is just as massive and catchy as its predecessors. We can’t stop listening to it. We can’t stop dancing to it. It’s making it pretty difficult to even focus long enough to write about it.

Premiering over at BitCandy, this new Step Rockets joint is one more piece of evidence in the …
